Writers On Strike
The last writers strike was an absolute bitch. A lot of very good writers ended up waiting tables beside the actors who were hoping for a script to take them out of the coffee shop.
For the best information I've seen on the strike, for up to the minute information on progress in negotiations or a lack of progess in those same negotiations look to United Hollywood
I'm already planning my life without them. It's too bad. That is, however, how life goes. I was looking for a way to survive as a musician when I found the jingle game and it was very good to me for a very long time. I needed to be able to stay home and actually be present in the lives of my children, I needed a stable and safe environment to teach myself how to live a clean and sober life. It gave me all of those things.
If it is time to move on, I do so from a position of strength and confidence that I got from my time in this part of the industry.
Thanks Hollywood. I will never forget and will always be thankful for the second chance you gave to me and my children. What ever happens We'll always have Paris. Here's looking at YOU kids.
